Because of all the time spent playing. Playing this is kinda therapeutic for me so I don’t regret it, but I definitely don’t feel proud of it.
Most of my prestige is from Horde on higher level difficulties as the game was out for a year before I even played VS. I feel like Horde was just a fun time waster and a chance to hang out with friends. VS has definitely sharpened my mind and reflexes though. There’s an actual benefit I get out of it besides fun.
You’re making assumptions that are not correct. I’m a grinder who always goes 50 waves on insane and inconceivable thanks to having maxed classes and maxed cards - one skilled maxed out player can carry a team to 50 - oftentimes with my friends starting with me (and just the two/three of us finishing because of quitters) or they answer my call for aid and jump in to replace quitters. Going all 50 waves adds up extremely fast especially during xp events - during the 6.66xp event I earned about 77 million xp - no speed runs - (a friend who did speed runs earned 99 million) - maximizing the events combined with grinding 50 at all times is the key. During 8xp I was earning 1 to 1.2 million for every inconceivable game (depending upon the class I played) - that adds up very quickly. I’ve successfully grinded for the ruby scion, emerald COG, seriously 4.0 and all the versus achievements - the xp earned is nothing compared to horde - it’s just the way that it is. I utilize gears as a form of white noise/meditation - instead of reading financial news 18 hours a day I’ve cut that to a fraction, with no negative consequences, and have come up with some great ideas while playing - it’s actually been quite profitable and far from a waste of time. Good luck.
Isn’t that the truth. Gaming in general would be considered a waste of time and money by many people. Fighting for that meaningless rank or achievement is pointless in the grand scheme of life but we do it anyways.
Mostly maxed out class gamers do speed run, if they already maxed out then what is the sense of doing speedrun - just for wing re-up.
re-up is nothing it just tells how much time you spend in the game.
I played a lot of horde and whenever I played I enjoyed a lot. If I am playing a game and don’t enjoy it, its a waste of time for me.
